Halloween Happenings

Halloween is arguably my favorite holiday of the year and I know I am not alone on this. It marks the start of fall and the beginning of all the fun holiday hoopla. Being a resident of Oahu my whole life means I’ve accumulated a good sense and feel for what to do during Halloween month, and believe me when I say - the festivities are endless! So round up your best ghoulfriends and bring on the dancing pumpkin man.
